Hopkinsville Plant Retains Over 200 Jobs

Gov. Steve Beshear visited Propulsys headquarters Tuesday afternoon to announce a $9.5 million expansion for “next-generation” upgrades to the multi-national Hopkinsville plant. Propulsys is one of the largest manufacturers of high-speed, low-torque motors. It has offices in Europe and an additional plant in China. Overall, the company employs 520 people worldwide with 207 workers in Hopkinsville. The expansion is essential to Christian County families since it allows those 207 employees to retain their jobs, Beshear said.
